Politicians are prissy it seems
    #4584181 - 08/26/05 03:59 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

But, unfortunately I am even prissier because I want to get plastic surgery.


London's Sunday Times reported in July that Prime Minister
Blair had spent the equivalent of about US$3,300 on makeup and
makeup artists over the last six years, and according to campaign
disclosure statements reported by the Boston Globe in May, U.S.
Rep. Steve Lynch of Massachusetts spent $2,506 on makeup
services only in the previous eight months. [Sunday Times, 7-24-
05] [Boston Globe, 5-17-05]

They'll do whatever it takes to grab those few extra votes.

i dont get why men do that shit anyway, men are supposed to look rugged, not like a damn ken doll, any man that puts on makeup is a sissy in my opinion.

and i think that plastic surgery is ok as long as its used to fix a REAL problem, not if you just think youre ugly.

A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.

To be fair, $3,300 over 6 years isn't all that much.

Consider that these were probably all done in preparation for media events and that cameras tend to exaggerate certain features. These are people in the public eye and like it or not, image counts.

Would you really do nothing despite knowing that there were people who were dead set on doing anything to cast you in a negative light and it could easily be done with nothing more that a picture that highlighted a particular defect? Especially when the insurance against said liability was so cheap?

I keep it real because I think it is important that a highly esteemed individual such as myself keep it real lest they experience the dreaded spontaneous non-existance of no longer keeping it real. - Hagbard Celine
